We are excited to participate in the Blogger's Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy's Creative Side. The Blogger's Quilt Festival is an on-line tour of quilters in action. It is open to everyone with a blog and a love of quilting. If you'd like to participate, you can find more information here.
The quilt we are featuring for the Festival is Piece, Love, Twilight: A Quilt for Stepehnie Meyer. We created it as a tribute to her amazing series, the Twilight books.
a thread at TwilightMOMS. We brainstormed ideas chose blocks that we thought best represented the books. Each of us signed up for blocks that interested us and when they were completed, they were to Elizabeth for assembly. When the top was complete, Elizabeth mailed the quilt to Vivian, who did a beautiful custom quilting job on it and then hand-delivered the quilt back to Elizabeth for binding and a label.

When the quilt was finished, we entered it in the Springville Art Museum quilt show where it won Best Group Quilt with a $100 prize (which was donated to ALSF) and the Pacific International Quilt Festival.
Several of our group members came to visit the quilt while it was at the Springville Art Museum, but not everybody could meet on the same day.

This quilt was created by Twilight Quilters Coven members Cat, Elizabeth, Iris, Jerri Lynn, Joyce, Vivian and Wanda and former group members Jean and Shannon. We were even featured in the February/March 2010 issue of Quilter's Home Magazine. We sent the quilt to Stephenie Meyer in January of 2010 as thanks for the inspiration she gives to each of us.
